I've heard that it's forbidden to use a thermostatically controlled hot plate on Shabbat. I understand why it would be forbidden in the case of liquids, but does this also apply to fully-cooked dry foods?

    "I understand why it would be forbidden in the case of liquids" Could you tell us the reason? Editing in relevant information can help others answer a question. – mevaqesh Apr 30 '17 at 9:33

That would make sense, as putting cold items on it would kick in the heating mechanism.

I understand why it would be forbidden in the case of liquids, but does this also apply to fully-cooked dry foods?

Based on the reasoning, it would make no difference if you put on solids, liquids or an empty cold pot.

    Where "cold' means anything below the target temperature of the hot plate. – Daniel Apr 30 '17 at 15:39
